Just Me and My Dragon... by Vyrilien Just Me and My Dragon... by Vyrilien
...What are you gonna do about it, cat? C:<


Entry for the Summer Dragon Contest.

Hosted by: *Contraltissimo
Prompt: Just Me And My Dragon.

The first prize is this amazing thing and the deadline ends somewhere in September. So plenty of time to join in! All media accepted and you can even submit old art for the contest. What are you waiting for?


I'm not good at painting humans, so I devised a dastardly way to get around it, heehee. But no, this thing just popped into my mind and I just went for it. Sparrow Jim and his scaly, firebreathing lizard friend, Vastris, scourges of the neighborhood. Beware, cats! This bird has a draconic bodyguard and he's not afraid to use it!

I've never painted such a big thing in so little time. It was a very fun one and oh my god, I might actually not be moaning about how much I could've improved on it this time and actually be very happy with this one! Doesn't mean I'm not open to critiques or suggestions. I'm always open to those :D


~Vyrilien


Time Taken: a few hours a day for about a week? ~20 hours?
Tools used: Wacom Intuos 4, Photoshop CS2, Corel Painter Essentials 3

This is amazing - particularly the cat's fur and the dragon's mane. I'm quite partial to the lighting as well. Seriously good work.
